About us

Our most valuable asset: our team

Since the foundation of 1st Mould GmbH in 2005, our team has grown steadily and consists exclusively of highly motivated employees. The commercial department is the direct contact for your enquiries and orders. Your projects are realised by fixed mini-teams, each consisting of a designer and a mould maker. They work hand in hand with the staff in the injection moulding department. Finally, our colleagues from the finishing department and the quality control department ensure that your parts leave our premises in perfect condition. All our employees and our temporary staff stand for the high quality of our services.
